with Castillo gone to NY who bats leadoff for Mineesota?
Bartlett? or maybe new 2B Casilla?
Tyner is batting leadoff tonight, but hes likely back to the bench once Cuddyer returns.

You'd think that Casilla would.
He's a speedy little freak , (now MY speedy little freak) who stole 50 bases last year in the minors. He has a minor league .370 OBP which is pretty good.

I think they aren't done. Like it was said earlier Castillo was probably only half of the trade. I could see Punto staying at second and bringing in somebody to play third. The buzz here in MN is that the 5.75 million is cash to use freely.

I would guess that Casilla bats leadoff and plays 2nd. Punto is just too much of a liability at the plate for the offensively challenged Twins to keep marching him out there. Hopefully this is a precursor as jfg alluded to, because on the surface it looks like a poor deal for the Twins.

Kudos to GiantsFan14 for the sig.
